REVIEW for Mind of the Phoenix (The Memory Collector #1) by Jamie McLachlan

Moira is a powerful empath, a psychic graced with the ability to read emotions and memories. Her skill is as much a curse as a gift, for in the harshly stratified city of Braxton empaths are slaves. Clever and beautiful, Moira has learned to rely on no one but herself. Determined to escape life as a concubine, she kills her master, and is imprisoned for the crime. 

This could be the end for Moira, but the government has need of her skills. A mysterious serial killer known as the Phoenix has been planting suggestions in his victims' minds that drive them to murder and suicide. To gain her freedom, Moira partners with Keenan Edwards, a handsome young detective, to stop the killer.

Hunting the Phoenix will bring Moira on a more dangerous road than she imagined, forcing her to confront dark minds, twisted moralities, and her growing feelings for the detective.


Mind of the Phoenix is stunning! Jamie McLachlan's writing is superb and I can only hope that there will be a sequel. Moira, poor lovely Moira has been through so much it is utterly heartbreaking and yet she is exactly what you need in a leading heroine. She is strong, brave and the woman is bad ass.

I really didn't like Keenan at first but the more you realise that they live in a completely different worlds that has different views and outlooks you understand his initial reaction to Moira. I loved how their relationship progressed and how clever the storyline is.

There are so many wonderful things that happen in Mind of the Phoenix and it is definitely a book that will keep you on your toes.
